The Lord's Hand.

Once again I have witnessed the Lord's hand in my life and the lives of my family.
Tonight we had our FSA National Board meetings. Brad just meets me at LDS FS since he works fairly close by. So when the meeting were over Brenley went with him in his truck to travel home. Haley and Camden drove with me in the Van and we were about 10 minutes behind Brad. As I was getting off the exit from the freeway I look over to my left and see a truck that looks alot like Brad's...and it is sitting in the middle of an intersection with cop cars everywhere. I realized after a few second that Brad and Brenley had just gotten into a wreck. Within 2 seconds of that understanding my phone rings....Brad is calling. My immediate question is "Are you guys alright??". He tells me they are but his truck is destroyed and he, of course, will need a ride home. So I went and parked in a Wendy's parking lot and got out and watch as the paramedics arrive and check on Brad and my daughter. I knew Brad said they were ok but I wanted to see Brenley get out and walk.....I could see Brad but I couldn't see her. After what seemed like forever one of the paramedics escorted Brenley over to me. She was pretty shaken. I gave her a big hug and ask how she is. She doesn't have a scratch but will probably be sore in days to come. Then I find out how this is a truly miraculous outcome as the paramedic tells me that Brad and Brenley not only got hit by someone but it caused them to roll completely. All windows except for one was shattered and the truck looked horrible but my husband and child walked away without more than a few bumps and scratches and one cut. Brad is showing bruising already tonight and they will be sore and may need to see the doctor tomorrow....but I think of how bad it could have been. I know the Lord protected my family today!!! I am so very grateful to Him for the miracles he worked in our lives today!!!!
So Grateful!!!!!

WOW! So glad to hear that everyone is okay! That's really amazing! Something kind of similar happened to my husband several years ago. A semi hit his car on the freeway (then ran). The cops said they've never seen someone walk away from an accident that bad. Nathan just had a little scratch on his leg while the entire car around him was destroyed. Amazing. I definitely know the Lord looks out for us!
